of people are unemployed. this city won't be successful unless everyone joins in the industry and tech sf is the way to ensure that happens. it is education. it is training and it is placement. those three elements as part of anybody's announcement in program have to be seen all the way through and this is what tech sf is doing. doing it with some wonderful community based organizations like year up, like bay cat, and bay vat. all three worked with sf city and city government under our leadership with the office of economic and work force development and we succeeded at landing a $8 million grant from the department of labor. i want to thank secretary sois for this opportunity and have appreciation for president obama and it was his idea of stimulating our economy to get these funds and we're going to use it for a long time. we're going to make this a great foundation, so tech sf is about utilizing those funds, creating an association with these technology companies that are creating the new jobs and the new products that come out. asking those technology companies to help us identif

lee, distinguished guest of ad, sf city, sf partners it's a real honor to be here to speak to you today and my work experience and path. i was originally born in elvaldoor and my mom brought me here at ten. after graduating high school i wasn't sure what career path to take even though i really like media and technology i didn't know there was a career path for it. everybody kept on telling me you should be a doctor, a lawyer because that's where the money is. the usual thing that parents say. it seemed to me you really have to be very lucky and hard working like a steven speilburg or end up video taping weddings which i have done and there is nothing wrong with. so in community college i finally decided to take a video production course which lead me to pursue a degree in broadcasting and i just dove in. my first semester at san francisco state i realized i would need some real world experience, and so i applied and was accepted into the internship at bay cat and i never left so i am still there. i learned so much there, not just the technical skills, but also soft skills ne
